What are Cinnamon Rolls – or Cinnamon Buns? The origin of this lovely buttery, sugary & cinnamon mixture traces back to Sweden (Which is why you will find them in Ikea) and you may hear them by the name of kanelbulle out there.

It is also an extremely popular sweet treat around the rest of Nortern Europe, in Denmark it is known as kanelsnegl, Norweigens call them kanelbolle, skillingsbolle or kanelsnurr, the Finnish know them as korvapuusti, the Icelanders call them kanilsnúður, and in Estonia it is known as kaneelirull. In both Austria and Germany, they are called Zimtschnecke. Cinnamon Buns (or Rolls) have adopted many variations around the globe.

The USA & Canada, where these delicious treats are also popular coined the name Buns opposed to Rolls. In USA they tend to be topped with icing & occasionally fried whereas Canadians usually have them self-glazed and not iced.

In Sweden where they originate, it is made by baking a number cinnamon rolls in a round cake pan instead of baking them separately, so that they stick together to form a large round cake & is enjoyed as part of a coffee break, personally my favourite way to eat them as they complement a cup of coffee perfectly!

Follow this Miele recipe then you will genuinely have the BEST cinnamon buns & you will feel satisfied that you made them with your own two hands instead of opting for a store brought option & will be a family favourite this winter with their soft, sticky and moreish composition.

You can make this recipe using any fan assisted oven; however we would always recommend a Miele oven to provide consistent results matching any bakery quality!


For the dough

500g strong white flour

250g whole milk (you can use any milk, however full fat is superior)

75g caster sugar

15g fresh yeast

1 egg, beaten

1tsp. sea salt

½tsp. ground cardamom

75g unsalted butter, softened (You can use margarine as an alternative but for the richest, most indulgent Cinnamon Buns, butter is best)

For the filling

150g unsalted butter, softened

75g ground almonds

75g caster sugar

20g ground cinnamon

For the sugar syrup

200ml water

100g caster sugar

To garnish

Pearled sugar


  • To make the dough, add all of the ingredients into the bowl of a food mixer, except the salt and butter. Attach a dough hook and knead on a low speed for 1 minute to just allow the flour particles to absorb all the liquid. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave to one side for about 15 minutes.
  • Uncover your dough bowl and then add the salt, knead on a low-medium speed for around two minutes. Increase the speed to medium and gradually start adding the butter small bits at a time until it is fully mixed in. When ready, cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave to double up in size (you could also transfer the dough at this stage into a fridge and prove the dough overnight).
  • When ready, knock the dough back, flour your work surface and with a rolling pin, shape the dough into a long rectangle.
  • For the filling, mix everything together until fully combined.
  • Very gently and carefully spread the cinnamon mixture all over the dough and fold the dough in half.
  • Cut the dough into very thin strips and shape them into buns. Place all of the buns on a baking tray, cover with a tea towel and leave to prove for another 30 minutes.
  • Preheat a Miele Oven on Fan Plus to 180ºC, and when the buns are ready, bake for 15 minutes.
  • Whilst the buns are baking, make the syrup by combining the water and sugar together in a small saucepan and gently cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved.
  • When the buns are ready, glaze them with sugar syrup and sprinkle some pearled sugar on top to finish.
